There was a bumper payout when Morpeth Lions Club distributed almost £5,400 to 30 charities and organisations across south east Northumberland.

The beneficiaries of the money had participated in the Lions Club’s ‘Dickens of a Draw’, which saw Astley Community High School in Seaton Delaval, receive nearly £700 from the ticket sales, which will be used to refurbish its outdoor centre.

Morpeth Mayor Joan Tebbutt, and her supporters raised a similar amount in aid of her nominated charity appeal – Henry Dancer Days.

Lion president Geoff Bushell said: “I would like to congratulate you all on your efforts and feel sure that you will put what you have raised to good use.”
